Project Runway ca. 18th Century
Ladies and gentlemen living in 18th-century Europe dressed opulently. The designing, producing, and wearing of fashion was elevated to an art form: luxurious silks, handmade laces, and precious metal trimmings were de riguer for those aligned with royal courts. In this exhibition are displayed lavish garments and accessories spanning the century. This exhibit comes from the Helen Larson historic fashion collection.
